It was not a missed commit. It was a file permission error.

As for looking for missed commits, the only strategy I can think of is comparing the message-ids from the emails against those stored in the database.

Also, the SVN revision IDs may be useful here.

If someone wishes to write a script (shell, python, or perl) that obtains a text file of IDs (messages-id or emails) from somewhere, then compares them against the database, that will come up with a list of missing IDs. Then we would obtain those missing emails.

Now that I think a bit more: it is better to use message-ids from the mailing list archives. That way, we can get the emails easily, which can them be parsed into XML and loaded into the system.

If we use SVN revision ids, we will have to create an 'email-like' message and parse it.

I don't want to get into parsing email message content. It will have false positives.
